Calvin Harris and John Newman have released, “Ole,” a song widely believed to be a diss on Harris’ old girlfriend Taylor Swift.
The song, which was written by Harris addresses the collapse of a relationship and the infidelity that finally ends it. Many believe the track is targeted at Swift and her new beau Tom Hiddleston, judging from the angry and passionate lyrics:
“My heart speaks/I ain’t seen you or been with you for weeks/But I see online that you’ve begun to be/A good girl and take trips with your boyfriend/Being attentive, continue to pretend/ But no, cos’ there’s no telling how far you can go/ You’ve hidden my name on your phone so you can call me to tell me you’ve been going through hell, left him alone and you’ve booked in a hotel.”
Newman previously joined forces with Harris for the song 2014 “Blame,” which came out on Harris’ fourth album, Motion.
